from Allan Glanville:

from Nancy Blumenthal:

from Stan Martin:

Great story about Sherlock Holmes, once again told from Watson's standpoint. It has all the flair and style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's familiar character profiles, but a more modern storytelling appeal from an author whose expertise on the subject really shines through. No wonder it was the first Sherlock Holmes story to be endorsed and officially authorized by Doyle's Estate.

from Vincent Valentine:

Two classics by Edgar Allan Poe:

The following recommended readings, also by Poe, are restricted due to the gruesome and gory details. Parental discretion is advised:

For those who want to study a case of mesmerism in the state of in articulo mortis, final stages of phthisis with a vivid description of emaciation and ossified lungs, the meaning of stertorous breathing and not to mention the inclusion of an informed consent, I refer you to The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar.

And for those revelers dressing up and partying for New Year's Eve and dressing in drag for Mardi Gras, how about The Masque of the Red Death, sort of a Mardi Gras party gone mad, reminds me of the movie, Eyes Wide Shut. And then finish off with The Cask of Amontillado with a couple of chaps wandering off from the revelry because one of them had his own vengeful intentions.
